His Rare Gift

rare gift

He couldn’t help but stare

astounded by this creature

like an exotic bird

who fluttered into his life

rare

fascinating

colorful

elegant

she possessed

what no other had

wore it proudly

without shame

yet with softness

in hues of blue eyes

you could not cage

such exquisite originality

but he could

love

adore

and worship with honor

this precious gift of her

Crushed Dreams

crushed

At her feet

crushed dreams

fallen from

her heart

where once upon a time

each beat brought

happiness, fulfillment

energy to the soul

hope, contentment

smile to her face

Now…

just broken pieces

scattered trash

thrown away

to die
